HIGH LONESOME CABIN...ELEVATE YOUR SOUL! PEACEFUL SECLUSION

Crabtree Falls Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4 in beds)

Hi Folks! BEFORE YOU CONTACT US (and if you get past this paragraph we encourage you to!) we have a 4 adult maximum and a 2 night minimum.....sorry, no exceptions. Children are very welcome but should be supervised or old enough to be responsible. Click the calendar tab to see if your desired dates are currently available. We require 4 wheel or ALL wheel drive vehicles due to the steepness of the gravel driveway, not because of weather. Rates are posted a little further down on this page. If you're still interested, please read on and be sure to read our unsolicited GUESTS REVIEWS....our wonderful guests are so much better than us at describing the experience. (and we're pretty biased, anyways) Thanks!

High Lonesome Cabin was built in 2008 in the Virginia Blue Ridge Mountains. This rustic cabin sits on 20 secluded acres high on a steep finger of the Priest Mountain near the Appalachian Trail in Tyro Va., minutes from Crabtree Falls. When you stay at High Lonesome you have a mountain all to yourself, and you may never feel the need to start the car again until you have to leave. But if you do venture out, wineries, orchards, stables, golf, rivers, antiques, lakes and trails are all within minutes of the long gravel driveway.

***FOUR-WHEEL/ ALL WHEEL DRIVE IS REQUIRED***

This is a small cabin (technically all cabins are small by definition) and we don't have swimming pools or hot tubs or jacuzzis or saunas, but you can get all that at a Holiday Inn. What we do have is the Tye river right at the end of our drive, home to some of the east coast's best fly fishing, as well as swimming holes and the AT swing bridge. Sherando lake is a short drive away and offers swimming, fishing and kayaking in a surreal mountain/beach setting.....a must see! The Appalachian Trail is a short walk away, and the Blue Ridge Parkway is very close as well. And if you haven't seen Crabtree Falls, it's a must.....highest waterfalls east of the Mississippi. Our 20 acres are surrounded by National Forest and protected land, so you actually have more like 100 acres of privacy! Outback in a small clearing is a stone fire pit where you can enjoy marshmallows and the starriest skies you've ever seen. There's also a picnic table and a charcoal grill, as well as a shed to keep extra stuff in. Cornhole and horseshoes are provided, as well as a hammock and even a guitar for fire pit sing-a-longs......(musical talent not provided....but inspiration is guaranteed) In winter, Wintergreen ski resort is about 20 minutes away, offering the best skiing/snowboarding Virginia has to offer....there is also tubing and ice-skating.

The main attraction of the High Lonesome is definitely outdoors, but the inside is pretty cool, too. Once again, it's small, but cozy, so you'd better like the person/people you're staying with...or at least plan on liking them by the time you leave ; ) ..... There's a porch with a great view, ceiling fan, rustic natural log columns, rocking chairs and outdoor speakers....or just listen to the birds and the Tye river off in the distance. *Just added* --new deck for totally private sunbathing....or you could eat breakfast, lunch or dinner there too. Moving inside, there's a small table for dining or cards, a dartboard, a wood stove/ fireplace, plenty of seating to watch a movie on the plasma TV, gorgeous stonework with cedar and pine walls/floors, a decent sized kitchen with cookware and utensils provided, small bathroom with shower only..... we're thinking of adding an outdoor shower, but feel free to use the hose for now! In the back is a small but cozy master bedroom with a very comfortable queen-sized bed. Both areas have ceiling fans and there is a wall mounted heat pump unit for AC/heat. Up the spiral staircase is the loft with a queen-size and a double bed...there's a TV with dvd player and a Gamecube and lots of video games. Usually the kids like to be upstairs, but they're welcome to pitch a tent and sleep outside if they're brave!

Some modern conveniences are furnished, but this is not a ginormous luxury log home masquerading as a “cabin”. The spectacular view, total privacy and mountain setting are its finest attributes….ones that only Mother Nature could provide. If a serene mountain escape is what you seek, High Lonesome Cabin will elevate your soul and clear your mind.

About Robb

We have been visiting the Virginia Blue Ridge mountains for over 30 years and have always dreamed of owning a place here. We have a deep love for nature, art and music, so we wanted something semi-rustic with a down to earth, 'blend in with the surroundings' feel. Also something that offered complete privacy.

Robb purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Robb chose Crabtree Falls

While we have enjoyed staying at many different types of beautiful places, from very luxurious 'cabin-style' homes with every possible amenity, to some of the cabin 'communities', (places where there isn't as much privacy as sometimes advertised) we immediately fell in love with the peaceful seclusion and tranquility that 'High Lonesome' offered. While sitting privately on 20 acres on the mountainside, it is surrounded by national forests and steep slopes of private land assuring that it will always remain secluded.

What makes this cabin unique

It's location is also ideal. Far enough away from the more 'touristy' areas of the mountains yet close enough to get to them if you desire. The only possible issue for some will be the steepness of the gravel drive, but the new driveway is in and working out well. For us, a small price to pay for the seclusion and privacy that comes along with it. While every stay in this beautiful area is a fantastic one, what we offer at High Lonesome is location....and if you are seeking a truly private, peaceful getaway with post card views and more stars than you'll see at a planetarium....you will love it!

Fantanstic Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I had planned a trip back in March which had to be cancelled so we were very excited to finally be able to make it up to High Lonesome. What a great place! Sitting atop a mountain, the cabin has beautiful views and tons of privacy. The cabin is small, but perfect for 1-2 couples or a small family. All the modern conveniences make the stay comfortable and stress-free. Most of all, you can tell that the owners take pride in what they've built and have a true love for the surrounding area.

During our stay, we hiked Crabtree Falls (just down the street) and visited Devil's Backbone and Wild Wolf breweries - the rest of the time we relaxed by the fire, listened to music on the cabin's surround sound system (a nice modern touch) and watched the snow storm cover the mountains outside.

Two recommendations - first, make sure you bring a stocked cooler, prepared to cook your meals in the cabin. We spent a little too much time in the car making trips to restaurants or grocery stores - everything (at least what we found) was 20-40 minutes away so this added up. Second, use Robb's directions to the cabin - we used GPS and again spent more time in the car than we needed.

Overall a special cabin in a great location. We hope to make HLC an annual destination and have already recommended it to friends and family.

Perfect Get Away!

  • 4 of 5
Althuogh HLC was exactly as described in the listing, the pictures didn't do justice! This is a clean, well cared for home away from home. The owners thought of everything to make it inviting and comfortable. Robb (owner) was super helpful and eagerly answered all my questions. The only reason I rated my stay as 'good' instead of 'excellent' is because of the driveway. I absolutely recommend a 4-wheel drive vehicle as stated in the listing. It's not a long driveway, but it is NO fun navigating in the dark (I'm glad I wasn't driving)! I have already recommended HLC to friends and family. It's a perfect adult get away to disconnect and decompress! We hiked Crabtree Falls and Sky Rock and LOVED them both! We had dinner at Devil's Backbone Brewery and highly recommend it (good spirits and food)! We also visited a few wineries and Blue Mountain Brewery on Rt 151. We can't wait to come back and do it all again, hopefully in the Fall to see the foilage. Thank you sharing your cabin with us. We had a very enjoyable stay!

AMAZING COZY CABIN! GREAT OWNERS! BEAUTIFUL BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAINS!

  • 5 of 5
Had a fantastic long weekend at High Lonesome. Beautiful private cabin up a steep but not unmanageable driveway as long as you have 4wd (after the first time it gets much easier). Cabin is perfect........ everything you need is there. We climbed Crabtree Falls (and went the extra mile to the meadow at the top of the mountain), went blueberry picking, farmers market, Devils Backbone, swimming at Lake Sherando. Ate a bunch at Mac's gas station/market/deli.....excellent homemade fried chicken! You will love the isolation and quiet. Kids built a bonfire complete with smores, caught fireflies, played cornhole and saw the milky way with a million stars. Our mutt Peaches loved the freedom on the property.....so much to sniff! Excellent communication with the owner Robb....he provided a great list of stuff going on in the area. Tons of information at the cabin too.
We will certainly be back......long weekend wasn't enough.

An Unbelievable Experience

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough positive things about this place. Yes, the drive up the mountain is intense (4-wheel or all-wheel drive most definitely needed), but once you're there... WOW. The property is simply beautiful - the cabin perfect. One of the best, most relaxing places I have ever stayed. Can't wait to visit again in the future.
